Watercolor Painting Effect Tutorial
I took a screencast to show how to turn a photo into a watercolor painting. Let’s try it, it’s very easy!
1. Smart Blur
2. Glowing Edges
Set the foreground color to black and select the brush tool. Set the Opacity of this brush to 10 to 50%. Then paint wherever you want to add the colour. That would be a great idea to use a watercolour brush that I will show below. Hmm looks nice.
